one quick-thinking pilot...

A friend of mine, who has a quick wit, owns a Cherokee 180.  One day he
was told by the tower to hold short of the runway in a taxiway while a
DC-8 landed.  The DC-8 landed, rolled out, performed a 180 and taxied
back past my friend.

One of the DC-8 crew said, "What a cute little plane, did you make it
yourself?"  My friend replied, "I made it out of DC-8 parts.  Another
landing like that and I'll have parts enough for another one."

...and one not-so-quick-thinking Fire Marshall:

I turned on the 10 O'clock channel 9 news here in LA recently, and saw
where a single engine plane (identified as Aero Commander) went down
short of the Burbank airport.  Both people on board survived.  The pilot
was lucid as he was being cut out of the wreckage and said he ran out of
fuel over Eagle Rock and was trying to make Burbank.

Remarking about the lack of fire, the Fire Marshall in charge of the
rescue said, "They are just lucky there was no fuel on board."
